9. One of mine has recently decided

that all he will eat is treats, like Whisker Likins - kitty junk food, in other words. He's like a little kid who wants to live exclusively on Oreos. I got one of those "Pull & Play" toys you put dry food or treats in; it's weighted at the bottom so it pops back up when turned over, and small bits of food come out a hole. It also has sort of "feelers" made out of something edible. I thought at least he should work for his junk food. But now he whines at me until I fill the toy with treats. He eats the "feelers" and then very methodically and efficiently rolls the toy around until the food falls out and he can eat it. Once it's empty he whines at me to fill it again. The other two cats also wanted to get in on this deal so I had to buy another toy, and now they fight over both of them.

The other cats, especially the big orange and white one, are not fussy. The big guy will eat anything that has even a speck of meat in it. Trying to eat a ham sandwich in his presence is a challenge. I'm gradually weaning the other one off his treat addiction by leaving his toy empty despite his complaints.

I have no suggestions for you. Cats are inscrutable and weird.
